Well another day of sun and hot weather, so not our norm, but hey I love it. I do find I am minding the heat and lol it isn't even summer yet! I will have to find a sundress this spring for sure. Old Navy has some on sale this week.
Busy morning, drove ds to work as he is leaving on a biz. trip and didn't want to leave his car at work for the weekend. Then went and picked up dad, took him to get his bld work done and his coffee and home. He is really not doing well, dr changed some meds and such but he is so short of breath. Well considering his lungs have to be giving out - smoking like a chimenia.... when I went into the apt this am, I promptly started choking and had to go directly to the balcony. OMG the smoke and stink. Even his old puter smells, hubby had to clean it all before he could work on it. I don't know what I will do with him here, but will be making a very nice spot on the deck for summer and fall and nice days. with a ash bucket. anything to encourage him to not smoke in house. but if he did when mum had O2 then nothing is going to stop him. arghhhhhhhh I DETEST smoking and sarcasm. lol well meanness, and bullying eect too.
Okay today we are going to go to visit sister in law. we will leave in a bit, then go to check on the trailer, then go visit, stay for supper and come back. So a day away will be good for us both and we always have a great chat when driving anywhere.
Hope the weather is good for you all, and even if not paste a smile on your face and just find something great in your life.
PS to caz, and joy mostly............. I am seeeing such a diff. in my posts, and attitudes for a whle, I am sure you both must be glad to not see the woe is me and sadness. Thanks for sticking with me all this way.

Well I was so excited to go play with Thomas and Eva, that I forgot to take dad his coffee. So at 11 when I got home I said OMG DAD. called said I would be down in bit, going to go get his coffee, and his meds.
So went to dr with him, and he said to come in with him. Hmmm. anyway dr thinks it is his water pill and bp. his sitting in chair 135/95 not great but. laying down 150/90!!! and then he got him to stand and wowowow 100! so dropped 50 pts. he said that is why he can't walk far, why he feels dizzy and disoriented. So changed some stuff and took hm off 2. Told me what to watch for and see how he does. Also gave him some meds for thrush which he doesn't have now but has the sore mouth it gives. I am doubting that he is rinising his mouth after his puffer. He also told dr he isn't eating right. maybe some days a doughnut or maybe an egg with it. I knew, but he won't eat when I offer, and sometimes I bring and he still doesnt eat it. I didn't mention but at times I wonder if it is a bit of failure to thrive....
okay.... we got the boards down and screwed into the basement floor for the walls, now to put the studs up on the boards and get ready to really look like walls. Won't be tomorrow as we are going to be busy.
I am ddriving my son to work, as he is going away for work and doesn't want to leave the car at work.. then picking up dad to go for blood work, and for his coffee and doughnut. then back home and we will go to truro. Going a bit early cos want to go check the trailer and see if we are going to be able to get it out to take to the dealer for some repairs.
Should be a great day as supposed to be sunny and hot again. Wonder what is in store for our summer, as this is super hot for our area this early this is like June/july weather.
Just watched "hungry for change" how fantastic and well told. what the companies, govt are doing to our food and how they keep us wanting more of the junk. Very informative and a lot of people in the know, in it.
Best go get ready for bed, as have to use the alarm - have to be at ds by 7:30!

OMG 23 degrees!!! WOW awesome weather, super start to spring! Dog and I went for a walk this am, then I went and played with Thomas, finally got over and took the playdoh and he had a ball and didn't try to eat it even once.
Wasn't able to get on spark this am, and it is still acting a bit strange. So didn't get my walk added but will do so.
Hopefully this afternoon some basement work, then I have to take dad to dr, Surprised he asked me to go, not sure if he wants me in the room or not.... anyway. do that and then home for fish supper. maybe some work on basement depends on hubby and what he gets done as it is 1:30 and I have to leave at 3:30 but what he is doing he can do alone.
Okay off to eat my salad. Hubby is down to 181!!! ARGH how how.... I try so hard, and he gives up a bowl of chips. argh.
dog is barking to come in too, best scoot!!!

Well I didn't do as much as hubby but then not as strong, but helped make holes in wall, tear it down and then helped take nails out of wood we are reusing. The bathroom is so big now, but we will be putting shower in and walls in for dads bedroom.
Dadd thinks he may know why he is so tired and not able to walk - his puffer that he has been taking for 3 months, he got the paper out and says can give you sore mouth, ( he hasn't told me but says it is), tired joints and muscles, and shortness of breath. So called told her he cant' wait till april to see dr, and she got him in wed. after noon. He wants me to go with him! Guess he really can't walk far. so tomorrow we will go over, hubby will re check puter that he put in for him today, and I will stay close while he has a shower and washes his hair. or may suggest that he cover himself and I will wash his hair and back. whatever.
So this eve, have my water drank, walked from dd after letting dog out, did all that reno work and now think I will drink some more water, ( very thirsty today) and then go in sauna and have a shower. We are both really tired today.
hope you all had a good day!! I put my time for walking ect. then hubby said that reno was hard work put that to your exercise challenge too. you worked hard. so added it. should be able to put good totals for rest of week! Yay for me and CATS too!
Oh forgot to say our friends that we met on our walk, their grandson was born early this am. 6.5 oz. they are so excited.

What a neat day.... We both had a good morning, went and got dad his stuff and water. then home and we took dog for walk. Going by there was a lady that was by a car in a driveway. I saw her but okay, as we went by I heard Cindy, Murray?? OMG it was old friends of ours that we haven't seen in at least 4 years. Her hubby was our best man at our wedding 35 years ago this July. He, Her and hubby all lived on same street growing up. He and hubby were play buddies, joined military together, same trade then got posted diff. places. We lost track for long while, found them here, they moved and now their son bought a house half way between us and our dd. They also live about 2 hrs from here now! They were waiting to hear about their first grandchild - stopped at the house to drop something off then were headed to hosp. So neat. cos he was looking for the key to get in, and wasn't able to find it, so that is only reason she was still in driveway. Had a great chat, told them drop by when they come to see ds and his family.
Then we went to library, and got my Wheat Belly book. Been waiting while for it. Went and got dad a new puter on sale, so hubby has that to do and said we will start renos downstais tomorrow. then stopped at store where hams with bone were on sale .99 cents lbs. got one for us and one for ds.
So home now and may walk down to dd for bit if she hasn 't company.
Hopeyou all have a great day!! HUGS
